Cheap ski hire Saalbach
The villages of Saalbach, Hinterglemm and Leogang make up this popular resort near Salzburg. Saalbach and Hinterglemm are separate villages, their centres 4km apart, which have expanded along the floor of their dead-end east-west valley. Saalbach is the largest, with a rocking nightlife, and though it hasn’t quite merged with Hinterglemm they’re often referred to together. A ‘ski-circus’ links the two, with lifts and runs on both sides of the valley. A slick lift system joins these two villages with Leogang, the more family friendly of the trio, and shuttle buses enable non-skiing transport between them.
Saalbach has a reputation as a bit of a party town, bringing in a very mixed array of people. Smart, expensive hotels line the main streets, but there are plenty of more budget conscious options here too. Despite the ‘ski hard, play hard’ attitude at Saalbach, the three villages all remain confidently family friend. Saalbach itself is an attractive, characterful village, with traditional-style buildings huddled together around a classic onion-domed church.
The area is perfect for beginners to good intermediates with mile upon mile of well-groomed and wide pistes. Saalbach’s two sunny nursery slopes are right next to the village, but for a more spacious nursery area head to the close neighbouring town of Hinterglemm. Keen intermediates will be in paradise with high, open slopes, challenging blues, and relentless reds. There are some challenging slopes on the north-facing side for the experts to enjoy too; the long (4km) Nordabfahrt run beneath the Schattberg Ost gondola is a true black, and the World Cup downhill run from Zwölferkogel is a great experience.
Whatever your level, Ski Discount can make sure you save money and get the right equipment to make the most of the Saalbach slopes.
